Anna grew up in Kirkland, WA and attended the University of Southern California. She majored in education, and started teaching right after college. After having her first son, she left teaching in pursuit of a more balanced lifestyle. After working in the family Real Estate Business for 4 years, she took a leave of absence to travel Europe with her husband and two sons, who were 16 months and almost 4 at the time. During that trip, she spent time determining her strengths and interests, which led her to start Anna Flora Consulting. The desire to be involved in a variety of industries, doing varied work was appealing. Now she manages all aspects of the business.
